One of the first players to verbally commit to Syracuse's 2017 class was Miami (Fla.) Booker wide receiver Sharod Johnson. Johnson is a perfect fit for the slot receiver position within Dino Babers' offense. The ability to put up huge numbers, combined with his strong relationship with Syracuse assistant Nick Monroe, led to his original commitment.
This despite the fact that he had never visited the campus in person. That is about to change.
Johnson tells Scout that he will visit Syracuse for the first time from Monday July 25th through Wednesday July 27th. The speedy wide receiver says he is excited about the trip and wants to make sure it feels like home.
"(I want to see) how the school is," Johnson said. "Getting to see how things (are) like."
Since committing back in April, Johnson has picked up power five offers from Illinois, Purdue and NC State.
